Hey warriors,

I'm looking for a good way to cloak my affiliate links in my e mails. I know everyone says to use plain text because it is better but im finding it difficult to cloak the affiliate link. I'm also in a non im niche so I think the affiliate links will scare potential customers away therefore i'm looking for a way to cloak the links.

Any suggestions would be much apprechiated.

    It depends on what email broadcast providor you are using.

    I know Aweber and Getresponse has "click tracking" which automatically "cloaks" the link. It's not really a CLOAK, but the link doesn't look like an affiliate link...which is what you are after it seems.

    I posted a thread similar to this last week, called "Affiliate Link Cloaker Software".
    There is heaps of info in there. I guess you could search the forum for it.

    Email I got said link is here :

    Hope this helps,

    Whether autoresponder mask outgoing links or not - you may still cloak/create clean affiliate links with your own domain.
    AFlinker plugin allows you to essentially run your own private URL shortener service, so you may always create link that will actually redirect visitor to your affiliate link. It's clean and you may use it both on the website and in emails or twitter messages.

    If your using wordpress, there is a plug in called pretty link that you can make your own extended urls.

    I've got a slightly different problem. I'm using Affiliate Prophet to track the source of my opt ins and have a different ref code for each of my subscribers. I'm trying to attach the ref code as a tid at the end of the link so I can track in Clickbank.

    When I use Get Response's cloaker, it completely DROPS the tid code. These other solutions that I've seen don't have any kind of custom url support. Any ideas?

    If you are not aware yet or forgot... craigslist is still one of best places to get free high quality leads and make money on them. It ranks #11 in US and #73 worldwide. Besides the job section where you can post working URL links you can also use links in "Community" categories such as Classes, Events, General, etc. If you are offering free online webinars, online tutorials, etc...this is a good place to start. Not only start but continue building your list and profiting. You just have to be a little creative, create a good landing page (lead capture page), and create something valuable that you can give for free and also have some kind of upgrade. I hire people on fiverr to post ads for me because it works over and over again. One of my best campaigns generated 308 free leads and made 42 sales ($99 item) just from 1 Event post in NYC on how to start an online business. It was 60 minutes free automated webinar on what is a website, how to set it up, how internet marketing works and how people make money as an affiliate...and then I sold a guide for $99 on advance internet marketing strategies. Not every campaign generates 308 leads but every single campaign has generated free leads.
